One of the most difficult aspects of any injury-related accident case is proving liability. If you are unable to prove that another driver was directly responsible for causing the accident that led you to sustain serious or life-threatening injuries, you may not have grounds to pursue compensation.
Proving liability in a truck accident can be an extremely complex process but it is one in which our attorneys are extremely adept. Our goal is to provide each of our clients with the aggressive representation and hard-hitting case strategy that will put them in the best possible position to recover the maximum compensation for their injuries.
At the Law Offices of John R. Discavage, PA, our attorneys understand that the pain and suffering victims of truck accidents often feel can go far beyond just physical pain. These types of accidents are capable of causing a lot of emotional and financial pain as well. Medical expenses, repairs, lost wages and other accident-related costs can add up quickly. As many truck accidents involve more than one liability party, it is important that we determine all liable parties so that we can prove their role in causing the accidents and hold them responsible.
For example, if a truck driver causes an accident due to driver fatigue, we may find that not only did he or she violate hours of service regulations designed to limit the number of hours a truck driver can be on the road, but we may also find that the trucking company was imposing unrealistic delivery deadlines.
In cases such as these, both the truck driver and trucking company can be held liable for their negligence and reckless behavior. Conducting a thorough investigation, looking into the driver's logs, analyzing maintenance reports and following up with any witnesses to the accident, are just a few of the ways in which our attorneys can go about gathering the evidence needed to substantiate your claim.
Rest assured that we are also well aware of the tactics that trucking companies and their insurance providers may employ in an effort to avoid paying out on a valid claim. We do not let such efforts deter us. We are determined to see that our clients get compensated for injuries they sustained as a result of another person's negligence or neglect.
